Abstract

Continuing in the tradition of its predecessors, the Third Edition of A Clinical Guide to the Treatment of the Human Stress Response brings the physiological and psychological aspects of stress together in a framework for improved understanding and practice. Thoroughly updated chapters, plus new additions on emerging topics such as resilience, provide theoretical and conceptual background to enhance the practical suggestions. A wealth of treatment strategies allows clinicians to find the most accurate interventions for specific client problems. And by focusing on the body's stress response instead of on the resulting pathologies, the book offers readers guidelines for preventing worsening symptoms and future relapses. The Guide's coverage includes: models of the link between stress arousal and illness; a system-by-system overview of stress-related disorders; measurement issues in stress and coping; treatment strategies for stress, including cognitive therapy, neurological desensitization, biofeedback, therapeutic breathing, EMDR, and pharmacology; special chapters on spirituality religion, nutrition, grief/loss, sleep, and crisis intervention; a treatment model, a treatment protocol, self-report forms, and morel; and new chapters on the topics of "psychological first aid" and fostering "human resilience," and more. Students, practitioners, and researchers in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, medicine, nursing, social work, and public health will welcome the Third Edition of A Clinical Guide to the Treatment of the Human Stress Response as a timely, accessible reference to an ongoing-and mounting-challenge.
